The winners of two local scholarship awards, sponsored by the Greater Killington Women’s Club, were recently presented at the Woodstock Union High School Senior Awards Night ceremony. The Club disburses two $1,000 awards to graduating seniors each year. 

The Sherburne Academic Award is presented to a Killington or Pittsfield resident with the highest weighted GPA attending Woodstock High School. The 2024 winner was Chloe Masillo. In addition to her academic excellence, Masillo’s extracurricular activities included membership in the National Honor Society, as well as a member and captain of the Woodstock Union High School Varsity soccer, ski and tennis teams. She will be attending Northeastern University in the fall. 

The Pat Zack Community Service Award is given to a graduating senior who lives in Killington or Pittsfield and has demonstrated outstanding service to his or her community. The 2024 winner is Sophia Nisimblat. Nisimblat has also been the student president of U.S. Youth Top Soccer at Woodstock High School and was co-founder of the Winter Unified Sports Club. Additionally, she has been vice president of the senior class for three years, president of the Spanish club and is active in many more student organizations and clubs, including the National Honor Society. Nisimblat was also a member and captain of the Woodstock High School Varsity soccer and tennis teams. In addition, she has been a loyal volunteer at her local church and did a service trip to South America. She plans to attend Boston College in the fall. 

“The members of the Greater Killington Women’s Club are proud to support these two exceptional young ladies, who represent the best of our community, in their academic achievements and commitment to our community,” the club stated in a news release. “We wish them all the best in their future endeavors.” 

The Greater Killington Women’s Club, formerly the Sherburne Women’s Club, is a civic organization that was established 60 years ago by Killington resort co-founder Sue Smith and other community members. The Club continues its generous support of the Killington community, local non-profit organizations and schools.
